No, these are two different settings which are unfortunately (I assume
inadvertently) named the same way. This discussion started earlier, but never
really came to a conclusion.

The main menu View -> Group Images sets the structure of the entire list of
images, whether there is none or there should be separators between albums or
file types. The "grouping functionality" accessible true the context menu binds
selected images together (potentially hiding them).

My proposal is to rename the following entries in the main "View" menu:

    "Sort Images" -> "Sort Items"
    "Group Images" -> "Arrange Items"
    "Group Sorting Order" -> "Arrangement Order" (or "Arrange Sort Order", but
that doesn't sound like correct English to me).

I want to replace image with item for consistency, as the main menu is called
item already. And as we handle also video, it makes sense to use a more general
term.

Yeah how to name menu entries is always a tough question.
Maybe:

Thumbnails View mode
                     Flat list
                     Group by Album
                     Group by File Format

Menubar - "Item" applies only to selected items, correct?
Maybe we should have this there too?
Group
    Group selected Here
    Group selected by Time
    Group selected by Filename
    Show Grouped images
    Hide Grouped images
    Remove selected from groups
    Ungroup selected

I just think the right click menu should just represent some of the menubar
entries and do not have any entries that are unique for the right click menu.
Just an idea.

Yes, the Item menu applies to selected items and I agree on having the grouping
controls there too. Except for show/hide grouped images, because those depend
on the current view mode (different in table versus thumbnails view).

I don't like "Thumbnails View mode" for several reasons (sorry, just want to
state arguments, nothing personal): It does not apply solely to the Thumbnails
View (which IMO should be called Icon or Grid View) and it is about adding a
structure to the displayed items, not about how thumbnails are viewed.

One point: Lets restrict the discussion in this issue to whether and how to
rename the "View" -> "Group Images" menu items. Not that the rest isn't
important, but it enhances the chances of reaching a decision, as the
discussion is easier to follow.
